    Have you tried turning 'sleep' to 'never' and shutting the laptop?

    It is supposed to disconnect your connection when you shut the lid. Shutting the lid causes a machine to go into sleep mode and shuts down non-essentials. The internet is a non-essential with regards to running your system.

    Here are a couple threads that have already discussed this, so you can get some more information on the topic:
